Good Evening my dears,..
So glad you dropped by the Blessed Hearth ...
Hope all is well in your world ...
We are having a rainy week here in New Brunswick..
Really not very Spring like yet..
But we live in hope... smile..
Nevertheless.. our days go by and hopefully we are accomplishing a few things..
One of those things is this bedroom..
When our 3 children were still home this was our daughter's room...
It was painted blue then but a while after she married and moved into her own home we did a redo and have changed it here and there a few times since..
The last several years it was more of a primitive style but I am not sure what it is now..
I seem to be in a kind of confusion as to what style I would define myself as nowadays.. grin..
I still like country and probably always will but enjoy lighter shades ..
Still love the old sign but changed it a bit..
Replaced the quilt and sewed up a few pillows ...
Added a lavender wreath and old rose..
Modged a couple of candles ...
My parents wedding photo..
A little book from long ago..
So love old stuff.. smile..
A treasure that Shonda stitched when she first started nursing over 20 years ago..
An old print from my Mom..
A little bunting project..
An old dresser...
An old photo of my Dad and I that is cherished..
A sweet old book...
This is a little pin I found on Pinterest ..
I only buy UK magazines these days so I would say that is my influence these days as to decorating..
And I have a permant love of old...
For so many years our home's decor was dictated as to the current trend in the craft world..
We had Open House here twice a year and every room was decorated with crafts that we made and sold..
So, we went with the style..
Country, Victorian, Teddy Bears, Primitive..
We did the craft shows here and in Nova Scotia for 20 years and then had the little shop in St. Martins for 8..
This Winter I realized that I can just do what turns my crank.. grin..
Anyway, by the length of this post one would think that it was some major redo when it is only a bit of a spiff up..
I will be honest and tell you that I so wish that it was still a blue room and the dearest girl was in there tonight with her music on and her chip bags hidden under the bed..
The lamp is lit and she is reading a book...
But she has two sweet boys in their bedrooms tonight and she is living the best years of her life..
Time passes... things change ...
But a mother's heart is always remembering...
God bless you all..
